Question about Coldtech 48 cu. ft. / 1359 liter Upright Freezer CFD-2F

Open Question

I recently purchased a used Coldtech CFD-2F Freezer. It ran fine for 1 day and then the control panel went out. It operated fine for about 3 days but now the compressor isn't running either. The lights come on inside the freezer but the fans up top aren't running.

SOURCE: Freezer won't run

There is no reset switch. There is a thermal overload protector mounted on the compressor. Does the compressor hum and then give a click sound. If so your compressor has failed. If the compressor is cold (Room Temperature) and it does not try to run your thermostat may be bad. If so remove the temperature control and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Unit should be unplugged to do this operation. Insulated the wires so they do not contact any metal surface. Plug the freezer back in. If it runs and cools replace the thermostat.

Sounds like a loose wire since the move. Check you have power at the switch (in and out). If you have, check the starters and ballasts

Is my defrost timer broken or my thermostat? The freezer was holding -30 temp but now is at +30.


Is the compressor running? If not - the timer could be stuck in defrost mode. If it is ruinning, then the freezer coil should be cold. If it is choked with frost & ice - then the defrost heater isn't getting powered (bad timer or defrost terminator - or is getting powered but has burned out.

You should allow the ice and frost to melt completely before turning back on again. Typically ice and frost don't build up so bad in a few days time to cause the temperature rise you're describing If getting cold - the compressor and refrigerant is likely OK, if not the defrost circuit is suspect. If compressor running but not getting cold - a refrigerant leak / charge level may be causing the problem.

Freezer runs for approx. four days with operation normal. Then the temp. panel of front door displays a symbol that looks like a short L followed by a period. Then the temp. gauge and the interior light...


From what I read, the "L." that you see on the control panel indicated that the controls have been locked. According to the manual if you hold down the "alarm reset" button for 3 seconds the "L." will disappear allowing you to control the temperature again. I don't as of yet know what is causing your overall problem though...

Freezer stays around 23 degrees, freezer guy says motor is frozen and wants us to unplug unit again (2nd time this week)


23 degrees definitely no good. Your getting some refrigeration though so compressor probably OK. Could not be seized. This may not be a hermetic system .you may have lost some refrigerant.But sounds more like your not defrosting .Have freezer guy check for manual defrost switch or defrost timer .

Hose underneath is probably for condensation and defrost water. If the compressor is not coming on, there is a good chance it is the thermostat. There is always the possibility that there is a refrigerant leak and it leaked down over the 2 year period. This is where I would start.

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Freezer switces off sporadically after periods of 20 to 10 days.


If this is a frost free refrigerator have the defrost timing unit checked out. It may well be sticking in the defrost position.
